Fitness & Special Interest Classes


The Municipal District organises fitness and special interest classes in conjunction with residents, instructors and community groups on a break-even basis. If you have an idea for a class you would like to offer or take in the future contact the Community Services Coordinator.

Due to COVID-19 community classes are now run online only.
